WSBA Governance

The Board of Governors is the governing body of the WSBA which determines the general policies of the Bar and approves its budget each year. The Board of Governors consists of the President, President-elect, Immediate Past President, and members elected from each Congressional District and at-large.

Your Congressional District is listed on myWSBA (log in required). You can also enter your home address (or, if you live out of state, your agent of service address) on this Congressional District map. Choose "Congressional," click on "Find My District," and then click on the map next to the symbol marking your address.

Proposed Bylaws Amendments

The current Bylaws contain many references to the old APRs which require updating to be consistent with the amended APR (now known as the "Admission and Practice Rules"). The following amendments will be on for action at the April 25-26, 2014 Board of Governors meeting.

The proposed amendments delete the reference to RPC 5.5(d) in Section XI.F.2 because the House Counsel intended by that provision are now covered under APR 8(f). The proposed amendments also delete references to APR 18, the former reciprocity rule, because such admission is now covered by APR 3(c) Admission by Motion. The remaining proposed amendments are simply updates to conform to the court rules and make no substantive changes to the Bylaws.
